    Default Why do you or do you not put your MBTI type on your TypoC profile?

    I like it when people list their MBTI type on their profile. It helps me better understand where they're coming from when they post. In fact, I wouldn't mind if TypoC required all members to list their type.

    Nonetheless, I've noticed a lot of people on this forum leave off their MBTI type entirely.

    Why do you or do you not put your MBTI type on your TypoC profile? What are the advantages/disadvantages of doing this?

    It had a box for it... It's a forum based on personality inventories, seemed logical to provide it in my profile.

    i put mine because i remember when i first joined and was learning about types that it helped me get a sense of the different vibes of the different types. it was cool to realize that i could "read" the persons type by their phrasing n stuff.

    i think it's helpful and i'm nothing if not helpful.

    I figure the spaces to list type are for identifying oneself to others if one chooses to do so... which can be a convenience both to oneself and others or a detriment both to oneself and others, depending on its accuracy...

    I do appreciate when others include some descriptors, because it's inherently interesting to me, but I don't mind if it's not the standard all-caps 4-letter MBTI code... settling on one's type identification can be a process and, after all, it is ultimately theory, and not something that will ever fit perfectly. What if one feels much more in tune with their enneatype than MBTI type? I would rather let each person attempt to illustrate themself with some loose guidelines than force a strict standard.

    My own current labels are based on what I perceive to be most accurate for myself.

    Same here. Even considering that many were wrong, people displaying their types was one of the major perks of this forum when I first joined. It's kind of a shame that most of the types people display these days are dirty, dirty lies.

    I've listed it on and off, off because of the potential for stereotyping and stuff. (Now I don't care. It's an internet forum.) I agree with you, and it also helps me better understand the types.

    Yeah, that wouldn't work.

    I have taken it on and off. When I was unsure and stuff. I also had it listed as awsm for a bit. It is better in some ways for people to take you at face value.

    Sometimes in the past I would leave it off until a bunch of people started bashing INFJs, and then I decided to keep it there out of spite.

    I don't use people's listed types to judge them or discredit anything they may say, it helps me get an overall sense of the similarities and differences of people with the same type. Very often someone will have the same type as me and share a point of view or experience that I really relate to.

    I have mine listed because its a typology forum and anybody who's going to negatively judge me based on a bunch of arbitrary letters and numbers isn't someone whose opinion I value very much anyway.

    I have considered changing my listed type to something else as a social experiment though
